I bought this 2014 CC with 55K and black leather to use the 3.6 VR6 in my MK2.
My B4 has been thru the original cloth and 2 sets of leather now running Jetta Trek front seats in over 400K miles.
The CC seats are loaded and really nice.
How hard can it be? get some adapter plates off the Bay and bolt 'em in right on!
So the plates were no way big enough for this set of seats.
We cut them both ways and removed every tab except the front center one.
we stretched the frames to fit the seats


These brackets come with nothing to attach to the sliders, just tabs stick down with 9/16 holes
So we made these to occupy the slider and bolt the re positioned tabs to


Tomorrow all this gets painted and attached to the seats

The monsoon has finally passed and I was finally able to get some paint on and bolt to the seats. The easily double the weight of earlier factory seats.

With all of the work that you’re done, maybe you should’ve started from scratch. Curious to see what the outcome is.

Totally agree. Who buys brackets for $140 and cuts them up? I advise anyone thinking about this to consider doing it from a sheet of steel with a cardboard template.
CC seats are really comfy.
